So Ive been waiting for 3t to list the Tornova Pro. It was added to the 3t site today. listed at 285g in 40cm :( kinda bummed. I was hoping for something closer to the Rotundo weight. Guess that flat top adds some weight.

Pretty similar weight to the Ergonova and Rotundo Pro.

Ltd weight is quite good though.

I love this bend. I have some ProVibe 7s's in the same bend, the weight on those came in at 250 and was livable, but I'm building up EVO with Record and would be sacrelige to put Campy on ProVibe lol.
Might have to pony up for the Team or LTD.

Where did you buy them from? I can't seem to find any retailers with them stocked yet.

Direct from 3T on their site. They have all the carbon bars in 42 and 44. Aluminum isn't available yet. They shipped them from Italy.

Interested to see if the different top section makes them any stiffer... My Rotundo Ltds are a bit bendy.

Weird- Hushovd does fine with them. I've sprinted at 1500w with them and had 0 issues. Lots of trackies use em too.

According to the one retailer I contacted their tornovas weighed more than their Rotundos by a tiny bit and the egg shaped part didn't really line up with their palms when they had the bar positioned normally. I skipped them and got some 40cm Rotundos because I couldn't find 38s.

Which ones are you talking about KWalker? I completely agree the alloy ones are very stiff, and IIRC they are the ones that most pros run. I bought the carbon ones to shave weight but was disappointed.

What am I missing? The weight comparison w/ Rotundo in Team in Ltd. is within 3 grams...
